PSA: If you were signed out of your Google account tonight, don’t worry [Update] – 9to5Google

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/02/24

I had to re-logon to my mobile phone, but not my web browser. It seems this was due to a glitch at Google, but doesn’t remove my suspicion when I see this message come up in the future. So I did check account activity at these links:

Casting the audio of application on your Linux machine via Chrome to a ChromeCast

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/02/06

Hopefully by now mkchromecast [WayBack] works on more Linux versions (and maybe even Mac OS X is better supported [WayBack]), but back then it was only available for Ubuntu 16.10 and up:

Do you want to stream the audio from Rhythmbox, VLC or another Linux app to your TV through Chromecast? Well, we’ve found a nifty little Linux tool that lets you do just that.

The tool is at github: Linux · muammar/mkchromecast Wiki  [WayBack]: mkchromecast – Cast macOS, or Linux Audio to your Google Cast Devices

Some ChromeCast URLs

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/02/01

I need to check these against a Chromecast v2 as the below URLs are from a v1 device:

More is possible by using cURL: Chromecast Hacking Has Begun | fiquett.com

sleep 8h; while true; do
curl -H "Content-Type: application/json" http://192.168.71.113:8008/apps/YouTube -X POST -d 'v=somevideo';
done

Reminder to self – did “Clear App Data” get me any Google Opinion Rewards surveys?

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/01/20

Somehow I didn’t get Google Opinion Rewards surveys for more than half a year. As per below post, I’ve cleared the app data a week ago.

This is a reminder to myself to check if I got any surveys since…

(Yes, I’ve location on, battery saving off and the app runs).

Shared Google Calendars not showing up on iPhone, iPad, and Mac? Here’s the fix! | iMore

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/12/16

If shared Google Calendars do not show on your iPad, iPod, iPhone or Mac, then go to https://www.google.com/calendar/syncselect (sometimes called https://www.google.com/calendar/iphoneselect) and set a tick mark in front of each calendar you want to appear there. Finally, refresh the calendar list on your iOS device and you are set.
